Bob and His Fiddle
- A stereograph titled "Bob and His Fiddle" printed and photographed by O. Pierre Havens of Savannah, Georgia. The albumen prints depict a boy holding a homemade fiddle while seated outside a small log dwelling. He wears a white shirt, dark vest, dark pants, and no shoes. His hat is lying on the ground by his left foot. He looks down at the fiddle held in his left hand and propped on his left shoulder, while holding a bow made from string and a bent stick in his right hand over the strings of the fiddle. The title is blurred and printed in the bottom left corner on the right facing print. The prints are mounted on card stock that is orange on the recto and light pink on the verso. On the verso black text in various decorative fonts reads: [Havens / (Successor to Wilson & Havens) / PHOTOGRAPHER / 141 & 143 Broughton Street / SAVANNAH, GA. / PUBLISHER OF THE / LARGEST COLLECTION / OF / SOUTHERN VIEWS / IN / THE UNITED STATES.].
